Executive Search Committee Report
The names of individuals recommended for selection
in an Executive Search Report pertaining to the
special master for State corrections should not be made available
for public inspection and copying
where such individuals were not ultimately appointed to the position.
Information about the training and experience of the individual
appointed to the position should be made available for public inspection
and copying. Information about the unsuccessful applicants must
remain confidential to avoid the frustration of the legitimate government
function of hiring qualified personnel, by deterring individuals
from applying for government employment.
